TIRANA, January 30
Albania seems to be one of the best budget travel destinations for 2017 and this has been confirmed by some of the most influential media outlets. Forbes.com, which reaches 48 million monthly unique visitors, is among them. It published the list of the 30 cheapest places to travel in 2017. Forbes contributor, Laura Begley Bloom interviewed 14 travel experts and drafted the list of the 30 best bargains around.
Albania was chosen by Stephanie Parker from Big World Small Pockets. Albania is a little country in size but it has a huge tourism potential for travellers.
“This forgotten corner of Europe is a wonderfully off-the-beaten-track budget destination in an otherwise very touristy and expensive continent. With fantastic beaches along its coastline, including the fishing port of Saranda, Albania gives visitors the chance to enjoy the Mediterranean waters for a fraction of the usual price,” the articles says.
Moreover, it highlights budget accommodation, which starts from as little as $5 per person and fishing trips or boat rides to the nearby islands are similarly well priced.
“There’s also some fascinating historical sites across Albania that are either free to enter or cost only $2-$5. From the mountainous medieval town of Gjirokastra to the Roman ruins at Butrint, this is a diverse and very different side of Europe, which is definitely worth visiting before the crowds do,” the article concludes.
The list includes places such as South Africa, Puerto Rico, Chile, Crete, Morocco, Vietnam, Belize, Portugal, Ecuador, Cambodia, Guatemala, Indonesia, etc.
